Phase 3 Worship Guidelines

The obligation to attend Sunday Mass is continues to be dispensed. We urge those who have serious health issues, who are most vulnerable, who are not feeling well, or who fear their own health to refrain from attending church during this time.

General Guidelines for Mass Attendance in Church (updated 9/15/2020)

  • Tickets are not required for Mass. Attendance will be monitored at Daily Mass to ensure that we do not exceed seating capacity.
  • You may select your own pew at all Masses. Simply choose an appropriate seat based on the number in your party. All available seats in church are designated with card. Those living in the same household may sit together.
    • Red card is a single seat
    • Yellow card is for either 1 or 2 people
    • Blue card is family seating for 3-5 people. If your party is larger than 5, please use multiple family spots.
  • Masks are required at entry and should remain in place at all times aside from when receiving Communion.
  • Be mindful of social distancing and maintain six feet of distance from others at all times.
  • Please drop your collection envelopes in the collection basket placed inside the church as you enter or leave the church. The basket will not be passed around during offertory. 
  • Beginning the weekend of September 20, congregational singing will be encouraged.
  • The sign of peace may be expressed by means of a smile and/or a nod of the head. No physical sign of peace will be exchanged.
  • As you leave, please leave your kneeler down. This will indicate to us where to sanitize. 
  • The church will be sanitized after every mass.  To facilitate this cleaning in preparation for the next mass, we ask people not to linger or visit in church after mass.

Guidelines for Receiving Holy Communion in Church:

  • Please bring hand sanitizer to use before receiving Communion.
  • During Communion, please maintain social distancing in the line by spacing out six feet from the person in front of you.
  • Communion will be distributed by means of the sacred Host only. There will be no distribution from the chalice.
  • Out of consideration and concern for others, we ask everyone to receive Communion in the hand rather than on the tongue. 
  • When approaching the priest for Communion, place your hand flat atop your other hand.  The priest will place the Host on your hand and then let go of the Host to avoid any contact with your hand.

We look forward to worshiping with you in church soon.
